Portland is a great town. I start my post with this for a couple reasons. First, I’ve gotten about five emails in the last week asking if I live in Oregon/Portland. To clarify… I live in Portland. I was born and raised in the Portland metro area. I wanted to move up until I actually could, and then I realized this place was all too awesome to up and leave.
Boy am I glad I stuck it out. As I’ve taken up motorcycling and started frequenting events here, I couldn’t be more happy with the motorcycling community in which I live. I’m currently working on the planning stages of a cool [big] project and because of this I am visiting people and shops around town, talking ideas and getting feedback for what I’m doing. Some colleagues and friends pointed me in the direction of some shops I’d never actually been to. One of which being the aptly named Moto Galore. Long story short this spot further reinforced how many cool people and places there are in this small town.
